Actually I do this sometimes. But you need Windows XP Pro to do it. Create another user account under Control Panel > User Accounts. Then right-click (or Ctrl Right-click) on Skype shortcut and select Run As... Enter your new Windows user account name and password and you have another copy of Skype running!

Both Skype instances can use different audio devices.
